A-Z How Many Have You Read/Heard Contest PRIZES!!!

A to Z is over. Thanks so much to our hosts:  Arlee Bird, Alex J Cavanaugh, Jen Daiker and Talli Rolland.
Wow. What a ride it has been. Having my mother-in-law visit for spring break made keeping up with everyone's blogs difficult toward the end, but thanks everyone for joining me for my posts. 

I had so much fun trying to find books I'd listened to for each letter. It brought up great memories and gave me an excuse to highlight older and less-hyped books. I've also decided to use this format for my monthly giveaways, using the audiobooks I've listened to each month.

I ended up with seven name-filled pages worth of entries for my How Many Have You Read/Heard Contest. It was a lot of cutting, but also way cool!

Book Expo is at the end of this month, which means I have a handful of books and now-published ARCs left from last year to give away before I load up on all new goodies. 

So, in first place, and winner of a $10 Barnes & Noble gift certificate and an ARC if she wants one:

***Karla Nellenbach***

The winners of a book and an ARC if they want one:

Laura Pauling
Alison Miller

The winners of a bookmark and an ARC if they want one:

Alicia Gregoire
Jemi Fraser
Nichole Ducleroir

The books I have to giveaway are:

The Journal of Curious Letters (The 13th Reality, #1)   The Blade of Shattered Hope (The 13th Reality, #3)     Pillage (Pillage #1)                         Inside Out (Insider, #1)  My Soul to Keep (Soul Screamers, #3) 
I'll be contacting people to get book/ARC preferences. If you don't have an email available on your bio, please send it to me via my email or as a comment on this post. 

Finally, anyone who requested a query crit on "Q" day will get one. I'll be contacting all of you also. 

Thanks again, everyone, for following last month. It's been a blast!

  3. Hey Jennifer! Thanks! Sorry I missed out on reporting what books I'd read last week. It became kind of a fun game for me. Sad, I know. Book or arc doesn't matter. I'm interested in Pillage first and then Inside out.

    Have fun at Book Expo! So jealous!
